Heavy reigns

It rained a lot yesterday

Washed out the pile of dirt

Beside the driveway

I found your favorite toy

From when you were four

Remember him my baby boy?

You remember little firehorse?

That family vacation when we drove

About an hour away

You started crying, Couldn’t find him

But I wouldn’t turn back no way

That was the trip.

When you got sick

Things would never be the same

Firehorse was always there waiting to play

In the pile of dirt

Beside the driveway

  1. it’s always a question of who’s holding the reigns. touched a nerve with this. capturing the profound feeling of letting our children down, in deference to life outside of our bubbles. it redeems at the end, knowing that there is always a chance that things get buried only deep enough to temporarily be obscured, but simply waiting for a deluge. kudos on another fine poEM
